At the University of Adelaide you will be studying in an environment which pursues excellence, values creativity, and gives its graduates the opportunity to make an impact on the world.


THE UNIVERSITY OF ADELAIDE With more than 135 years of excellence in education, the University of Adelaide is one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious tertiary institutions. Since its establishment in 1874, the University has developed a reputation for excellence in teaching, learning and research, with major strengths in agriculture, wine and food, biological sciences, physical sciences, health sciences, information technology and telecommunications, environmental sciences and social sciences.

including students enrolled at the Ngee-Ann Adelaide Education Centre in Singapore. This is a partnership between the University of Adelaide and the Ngee-Ann Kongsi, a highly respected and long established foundation actively involved in educational, cultural and welfare activities in Singapore.

The University is associated with five Nobel Prize winners, has produced 104 Rhodes Scholars and 104 Fulbright Scholars, and is a member of the Group of Eight – Australia’s leading research-intensive universities.

The University accounts for some 28 per cent of international enrolments at all South Australian higher education providers (DEEWR Higher Education Statistics 2009).

With more than 22,000 students and over 3,000 staff, the University is small enough to provide personal interaction with teaching staff, yet large enough to offer a broad range of programs and student support services. At the heart of the University’s vision is a belief that the experience of the student is fundamental, and that research and high quality teaching have a symbiotic relationship that underpins and characterises the finest universities in the world. The University of Adelaide is committed to producing graduates recognised worldwide for their creativity, knowledge and skills, as well as their culture and tolerance.

An International Outlook The University of Adelaide is strongly committed to international education. It admitted its first international students more than 60 years ago. Today, over 6,000 international students from more than 90 countries make up approximately 28 per cent of the student population,

2 THE UNIVERSITY OF ADELAIDE

A truly international outlook requires two-way exchange, and the University has many formal agreements for student and staff exchange, research collaboration and other forms of cooperation with leading universities, research institutes and academies around the world.

A Progressive Institution From the start, the University of Adelaide has been one of Australia’s most progressive institutions. It was the first Australian university to admit women to academic programs – in 1881, ahead of Oxford (1920) and Cambridge (1948). Adelaide was the first Australian university to grant degrees in science, and the first to establish a Conservatorium of Music. Adelaide graduated Australia’s first woman surgeon (Laura Margaret Fowler), the first woman elected to a university council in Australia (Helen Mayo), and the first Australian woman to be a Queen’s Counsel, South Australian Supreme Court Judge, Chancellor of an Australian university and Governor of an Australian State (Dame Roma Mitchell).

I chose the University “ of Adelaide because so many things appealed to me—the location, village-like atmosphere, and the emphasis on practical learning. Jenneke Kievit Netherlands Exchange, Faculty of Sciences

STUDENT LIFE 19


ACCOMMODATION The University understands that accommodation plays an important part in building a solid foundation for academic success.

University Accommodation Service www.adelaide.edu.au/accommodation/ Finding comfortable accommodation, in a convenient location with the right people, is important but can take time, so international students are advised to begin considering their options well before they arrive in Adelaide. Adelaide boasts a wide range of accommodation options to suit different budgets and tastes, including University managed accommodation, residential colleges, student hostels, private rental and share housing. University managed accommodation and residential colleges offer many advantages, as they are close to campus and offer furnished rooms with electricity, gas and water all included in the cost. If University or college accommodation does not suit individual circumstances, students can contact the friendly team at the Accommodation Service who will be pleased to help them find an alternative with the benefit of local knowledge.

Temporary Accommodation Service All international students are guaranteed one week of single room temporary accommodation upon arrival (a fee applies). This service is provided by the International Student Centre and must be arranged before you arrive in Adelaide.

20 ACCOMMODATION

Students accompanied by family members will find that private rental accommodation in houses or apartments is the most suitable accommodation option. It can be easier for students to come to Adelaide alone initially in order to arrange suitable permanent family accommodation. Spouses and children who arrive later can then move directly into permanent accommodation without requiring temporary arrangements.


Figures are average estimates only, and do not include bonds/security deposits. Students should contact the relevant accommodation provider for actual costs.

ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS THE VILLAGE

Average cost: A$200-$230/week (inc. utilities) WEB: www.adelaide.edu.au/accommodation/ uni/thevillage/ Managed by the University of Adelaide, The Village is a purpose built facility with the capacity to accommodate over 400 students. The Village offers a range of accommodation options, including fully furnished four or five bedroom townhouses and four bedroom apartments. Situated in the West End district close to the Central Market and Chinatown, the Village is a 25 minute walk or a free bus ride to North Terrace Campus. Each dwelling contains a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable living/ dining areas, air conditioning and high-speed Internet access. Other features include a coin operated laundromat, bicycle storage areas, roof top gardens and balconies, and state-of-the-art security. On-site staff provide advice and assistance, and social events are scheduled throughout the year. MATTANYA

Average cost: A$180/week (includes utilities) WEB: www.adelaide.edu.au/accommodation/ uni/mattanya/ Mattanya is a group of four University-owned houses in North Adelaide, only a 15 minute walk across the parklands to the North Terrace Campus and close to the Melbourne Street café and restaurant district. Mattanya provides comfortable and convenient living in a quiet suburban location. Houses each have four or five bedrooms, with shared bathrooms and living areas. ROSEWORTHY

Average cost: A$160/week (includes utilities and five evening meals) WEB: www.adelaide.edu.au/accommodation/ uni/roseworthy/ Roseworthy Campus offers accommodation for students studying at the campus, 55 kilometres north of Adelaide. Undergraduate students reside in Residential Halls, which offer fully

furnished single rooms with shared kitchen. Postgraduate students reside in the Custance Centre which is comprised of a number of five bedroom houses and three bedroom units. Enjoy campus living with a library, computer centre, chapel, swimming pool, gymnasium, billiard room, and canteen on site. A transport service operates daily to Gawler, linking with trains to and from Adelaide, and an inter-campus shuttle bus operates three times each weekday during semester between the Roseworthy, North Terrace and Waite campuses. RESIDENTIAL COLLEGES

Average cost: A$340-375/week (includes utilities and most meals) WEB: www.adelaide.edu.au/accommodation/ colleges/ The University of Adelaide is affiliated with five privately managed residential colleges across Adelaide. Each college enjoys a long history of academic success together with a strong reputation for developing community leaders and a proud alumni tradition. Colleges offer fully catered accommodation where most meals and a weekly room clean are incorporated into the accommodation fee. They are located close to the city within a 15-20 minute walk from the North Terrace Campus and a 15-25 minute bus or bicycle ride from Thebarton and Waite campuses. College options include: Aquinas College, Lincoln College, St Ann’s College, St Mark’s College and Kathleen Lumley College (only for postgraduate and mature age students). All colleges are coeducational. PRIVATE RENTAL AND SHARE HOUSING

Students are advised to conduct some research into the local private rental market before arriving in Adelaide and to begin their search for appropriate rental housing shortly after arrival, as the process can take time. The University Accommodation Service will help students find private accommodation through the Private Rental Database, which is updated daily and free of charge. Students are encouraged to contact the University Accommodation Service for more information at any time. Rental costs vary depending on location, quality and size, with prices generally decreasing as you move further from the city centre. Leases are usually for six or twelve months, with a refundable bond of four to six weeks rent in advance. STUDENT HOSTELS

Average cost: A$120-$240/week WEB: www.adelaide.edu.au/accommodation/ options/hostels/ Student hostels usually offer single bedroom accommodation, with some offering a limited number of twin, double and triple share rooms. Each bedroom is fully furnished with access to a shared bathroom, laundry, lounge and recreational activities. Gas, electricity and water are generally included in the set fee. Most hostels are located in suburban areas of Adelaide so students will need to budget for public transport costs. Hostels offer different lengths of stay varying from daily, weekly, three, six or twelve-month leases or on a semester/academic year basis. Hostels are not affiliated with the University, and students must apply directly to the hostel of their choice. HOMESTAY

Average cost: A$110-$300/week (does not include utilities)

Average cost: A$180-$250/week

WEB: www.adelaide.edu.au/accommodation/ options/private/

Living in a home with a local person or family can be a great way to experience and learn more about the Australian way of life. Homestay usually includes a furnished room, two or three meals per day and all expenses besides personal items and telephone calls. Homestay should be organised independently of the University Accommodation Service.

Renting a house or apartment can be a less expensive option, particularly if sharing with others; however, students will need to factor in to their budget additional costs such as food, electricity, gas, telephone and furniture.

MONEY MATTERS International applicants need to consider a range of financial issues, including the cost of living, health insurance and tuition fees, before applying to the University.

Planning a Budget Adelaide is one of Australia’s more affordable cities, with average weekly expenses lower than Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane*. Accommodation is the largest variable expense – it can cost anywhere from around A$110 for shared private accommodation outside of the city centre, to A$200 for University-managed accommodation within the city centre, or A$250 for private sole occupancy accommodation. There can be large set-up costs associated with private accommodation which can be avoided by choosing University-managed accommodation. * Source: Economist Intelligence Unit, 2010

Application Fee An application fee of A$100 must accompany the University of Adelaide Undergraduate Application Form. An exemption may apply for some government/externally-sponsored students.

Tuition Fees International students are required to pay international student tuition fees, which cover the cost of teaching and many student support services. The Indicative Annual Tuition Fee quoted in this prospectus is based on the standard full-time enrolment load of 24 units per year or 12 units per semester.

The quoted fee is a base fee that may be subject to a discretionary annual increase for each of the subsequent years in the program for the duration published in this prospectus.

Each student will be advised of their fee schedule in their offer of admission to the University. Fees may vary depending on enrolment load; if students ‘overload’ or ‘underload’, fees may be increased or decreased accordingly.

Telephone/postage

A$22−$30

New international students are required to pay a tuition fee deposit of A$9,000 when accepting an offer of admission. The payment will be counted as credit towards tuition fees in the first enrolment period. After enrolment, students are invoiced for the balance of their fees in that enrolment period. The University invoices you (or your sponsor) each enrolment period according to your enrolment load.

Study Related Costs All students should allow at least A$500 per year for textbooks and basic study materials. Depending on the program, other costs may include specialist equipment (e.g. laboratory coats, microscopes, stethoscopes), optional supplementary reading and academic program materials, field trips, and expenses such as thesis preparation, printing and binding.

Health and Medical International students and their dependants are required to have health insurance in Australia through the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) scheme. The University’s preferred provider of OSHC is OSHC Worldcare. Visit: www.oshcworldcare.com.au/default.aspx

This should be viewed as a guide only for a single student. Costs can vary significantly from one student to another. These are basic living costs at the time of publication and do not include program tuition fees, costs for textbooks, other study related needs, running a car, medical expenses, or any luxuries. * A  ccommodation costs vary significantly based on location, type and arrangement. For example, centrally located accommodation generally costs more than in the outer suburbs. Similarly, students can lower their accommodation costs by sharing with other students - the lower end of the price range shown above is mostly shared accommodation. # Gas and electricity often included in University managed accommodation.

The University requires all international students to have OSHC for the duration of their visa at the time of admission. At the time of publication, twelve months of OSHC basic cover was A$420 for a single student and A$840 for a family. OSHC covers up to 100% of the scheduled fee for most medical services and 100% of the scheduled fees in hospitals and emergency ambulance. Students may consider taking out additional insurance for extras such as dental work, physiotherapy and optometry.


BEFORE ARRIVAL Tuition Fee deposit Overseas Student Health Cover* Economy air travel

Students with Families Students who bring their families with them to Australia will need to take into account additional costs associated with health cover, housing, food, transport, childcare and educational expenses. School attendance is compulsory for all children aged six to fifteen, with most children starting school at five years of age. Children may attend government operated schools or independent schools. For information and advice for international students with families, visit: www.international. adelaide.edu.au/living/family/ All schooling services attract a fee. At the time of printing, the fees for government operated schools were A$3,600 per year for primary school (from reception to year 7) and A$4,500 per year for secondary school (from years 8 to 12). These fees include intensive English language development and support if required. A registration fee is charged per family. This is currently A$500 in the first year and A$300 in subsequent years. For details see: www.internationalstudents. sa.edu.au/pages/dependants/

Part-time Work Many international students and their dependants hope to obtain part-time work to supplement funds for living costs. It may be possible to secure employment; however, we advise that students should not rely on part-time work for essential expenses, as obtaining a job is not guaranteed and can take time. Students should also be aware that the workload for many programs is intense and students may not have the time to hold employment as well as study full-time. Under current visa regulations students have the right to work after studies in Australia have commenced. Students may work up to 20 hours per week during term time, and unrestricted hours during published University holidays.

Pre-Enrolment English Program www.adelaide.edu.au/elc/courses/pep/ The Pre-Enrolment English Program (PEP) is designed for students from language backgrounds other than English who are planning to study at the University of Adelaide. The program provides an alternative entry pathway for prospective students who have received offers to the University of Adelaide, conditional upon English proficiency. On successful completion of the PEP, students are granted direct entry into the majority of programs at the University. The PEP consists of interactive, task-based courses that run from 10 to 20 weeks, depending on students’ initial levels of English

proficiency and the specific English language proficiency requirements of students’ degree programs. A minimum IELTS (or equivalent) is required for entry to the PEP. Students with IELTS scores lower than the minimum are advised to consider undertaking the General English for Academic Purposes (GEAP) course. The PEP helps students develop the language and communication skills necessary for successful participation in tutorials and lectures, and an understanding of the academic culture of Australian universities. Enrolment must be confirmed at least four weeks before the PEP starting date, or earlier if the visa application process is lengthy.

General English for Academic Purposes www.adelaide.edu.au/elc/courses/geap/ The General English for Academic Purposes (GEAP) program is ideal for international students who want to study English in the academic environment of an Australian university. With a range of levels from elementary to advanced, GEAP programs all focus on developing speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary skills.

You can choose the length of the program anywhere from as little as 5 weeks to 45 weeks. GEAP can be taken as a standalone program or as a pathway (if taking IELTS/ TOEFL preparation as an optional elective) to further study at the University of Adelaide or other Australian universities.

Certificate IV in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages www.adelaide.edu.au/elc/courses/tesol/ The English Language Centre’s Certificate IV in TESOL provides the minimum qualification required to teach English to speakers of other languages. TESOL provides essential training in the use of communicative methodologies, lesson planning and classroom practice, through a mix of face-to-face delivery, selfstudy and project work. The program can be undertaken either as an intensive 4 week program or part-time over 10 weeks. Certificate IV in TESOL is available to native English speakers and those with a high level of English language proficiency and has strict entry requirements.

TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODS The University of Adelaide offers an environment where academic excellence is applauded and independent enquiry is encouraged. Students are expected to assess and think critically about issues rather than simply repeat learned information. To do well, students will need to consult different sources of information and evaluate them from a critical perspective. As well as preparing for a rewarding career, studying at the University of Adelaide will help students to analyse, understand and contribute to the world. Teaching methods vary between schools, but most courses are structured around a program of lectures. In addition, seminars, group discussions (tutorials), practicals and field trips are conducted, depending on the course.

Units and Levels Each course within a program has a unit value and a level. Each academic program has a total number of units that must be completed, and requirements for a certain number of units at specific levels, in order to finish the program. The depth and complexity of courses increases through each level.

courses (e.g. lectures, tutorials, practicals), you will need to allocate non-contact time. Non-contact time will be required for a range of activities which may include, but are not limited to, assessment tasks, reading, researching, note-taking, revision, writing, consultation with staff, and informal discussions with other students. While the relative proportion of contact and non-contact time may vary from course to course, as a guide, a full-time student should expect to spend, on average, a total of 48 hours per week on their studies during teaching periods.

Lectures

Assessment

Academic Programs and Courses

A lecture is a formal session where a lecturer instructs a large group of students. They are designed to give students a good starting point on a specific area of knowledge and identify the most important areas of the course.

To gain any university qualification, students must satisfactorily complete a specific academic program. Each program requires students to complete a certain number of courses.

Students are expected to listen carefully and take notes. Lectures that are held weekly usually run for 50 minutes, though some last up to two hours.

There is usually a mixture of assessment options, depending on the school and program. Most courses utilise continuous assessment procedures. Common forms of assessment include essays, assignments, practicals, tutorial papers, participation in group discussions and end of semester exams.

Some programs have compulsory courses, and may or may not include electives. In other programs students can make their own selection of courses, with the advice and approval of the School or Faculty in which they are enrolled.

The campus life “ is fantastic—there are a wide variety of clubs and the facilities are excellent.

Anna Louise Greed United Kingdom Bachelor of Nursing

Most courses are taught for one semester only, with the final assessment at the end of the semester. A few courses continue for the whole year and for these courses students will only receive a grade at the end of the year.

Very few courses are now assessed exclusively by an end of semester examination worth 100% of the final grade.

Tutorials Tutorials are small, weekly classes where students are typically expected to discuss topics and concepts relating to the course. Discussions are led by a lecturer or a tutor. Weekly assignments are often set and may involve a presentation to the group, a written exercise or participation in group discussion. Attendance at tutorials is usually recorded, and tutorial participation often forms part of the course assessment.

Student Study Commitment

GRADING SCHEME The University uses the following grading scheme for most programs: High Distinction

85-100%

Distinction 75-84% Credit 65-74% Pass 50-64% Fail 0-49% Other grading schemes may be used for a small number of programs or courses.

To successfully pass your courses, you will need to allocate an appropriate time commitment to your study. In addition to the formal contact time required for each of your

INTERNATIONAL LINKS FOR STUDENT EXCHANGE The University of Adelaide has signed exchange agreements with many international universities, which means that during your time in Adelaide you can apply to study for one or two semesters at one of these partner institutions.

Third Country Experience The University of Adelaide is keen to offer international students the possibility of a ‘third country experience’ through our exchange programme: Adelaide Abroad. With careful planning there is no need to extend your degree as credit is sought for the study undertaken overseas. A small number of places (usually 2-5 per year) are available at each university, and selection is based on academic merit and an interview. As an exchange student you remain enrolled full-time at the University of Adelaide while you are overseas; you continue to pay your usual tuition fees to the University of Adelaide but do not pay tuition fees at the host university. We encourage international students to apply to participate in our student exchange programs (but not to their home countries) to add a further dimension to their University of Adelaide education. There are many exciting opportunities in the Americas, Europe and Asia. To find out which of our partners is available for exchange, please contact: adelaideabroad@adelaide.edu.au For the most up-to-date info: www.adelaide.edu.au/student/study_abroad/

BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (PETROLEUM) Duration: 4 years Campus: North Terrace Indicative Annual Tuition Fee: A$27,500 Intakes: February and July (students commencing in July may have a slightly limited selection of courses and will be required to transition to the program schedule as followed by a February intake) Prerequisites: Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics Faculty: Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences School: Australian School of Petroleum Website: www.ecms.adelaide.edu.au Online enquiry form: www.international.adelaide.edu.au/enquiries Program overview: Petroleum engineers seek to recover oil and gas on a sustainable basis at minimum financial and environmental cost. Their tasks focus on extracting the maximum possible amounts of oil and gas from underground rock formations or reservoirs. This requires the practical application of advanced science and engineering principles, beginning with mathematical modelling of the size and nature of the reservoir, optimum well locations, the planned implementation of suitable surface facilities, and finally the prediction of liquid and gas flows during the recovery process. For example, the oil may need to be forced out of reservoir rocks by pumping water or gas under pressure into wells drilled for that purpose. Hydraulic or chemical techniques are often required to fracture or stimulate formations to induce higher flow rates. One of the current challenges is to produce hydrocarbon and energy from unconventional resources such as deepwater reservoirs, coal seam gas and geothermal reservoirs. A key feature of this program is the integration of traditional petroleum engineering topics with topics in petroleum geoscience and management, leading to a skill set that matches both the current needs of the industry and the way it operates. The petroleum engineering degree builds a strong foundation of mathematics, physics, geology/geophysics, computer applications and

58 ENGINEERING

www.ecms.adelaide.edu.au

engineering principles. Over the course of the program, the emphasis of the courses studied changes from more general engineering to specific petroleum-related topics. It also has a strong focus on management and business related aspects. These are a particular focus of the School and make its teaching curricula unique. Many staff members have had recent industry experience, further enhancing the relevance of the curriculum to the modern petroleum industry. Assessment: Class work, tutorials, project work, exams. All students are required to complete a minimum of 12 weeks practical work experience outside normal class time. Work experience can be undertaken in Australia or other countries. Likely careers: Petroleum engineers supervise and improve drilling and petroleum-producing operations. They study and understand geologic and engineering principles to predict maximum oil and gas recovery as well as ultimate production and production rates. Petroleum engineers are employed in very diverse occupations including well-log analyst, drilling engineer, production engineer or reservoir engineer. A well-log analyst evaluates a well’s potential and a drilling engineer is responsible for finding oil and gas, designing and drilling the well as cheaply as possible. The job of a production engineer is to analyse and optimise the performance of individual wells, to determine how to bring the fluid to the surface, and to develop a system of surface equipment that separates the oil, gas and water. Professional accreditation: Professional membership to Engineers Australia and many overseas engineering bodies. Combined degrees: Available with Chemical Engineering, Civil and Structural Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mining Engineering and Science (Geology and Geophysics).

LEVEL I

School: Dentistry

The first year of the program commences with an introductory phase which includes introductions to human biology, clinical competencies and the study methods to be used throughout the course. The Dental Sciences theme for the remainder of the year covers human structure and function using a body systems approach, basic human biology, community health and aspects of the scientific basis of dental practice. The Clinical Competencies theme covers basic technical skills (including chair-side assisting) and communication skills. Throughout the program students participate in case-based integrated learning activities which require students to work in groups, to engage in self-directed learning, and to integrate and apply knowledge from each of the themes.

Website: www.health.adelaide.edu.au/dentistry/ Online enquiry form: www.international.adelaide.edu.au/enquiries Program overview: The Bachelor of Dental Surgery is a highly integrated program with a single stream, running through the five years of the course, called Dental Sciences and Practice. Within this stream are two themes – Dental Sciences and Clinical Competencies. Students undertake a range of ‘integrated learning activities’ which link the two themes. They also spend significantly more time in non-hospital based clinical settings, both in private and public settings. There is an emphasis on communications skills and the development of appropriate professional behaviours and on contextual learning of relevant scientific information throughout the program. This occurs concurrently with the development of clinical skills from the beginning of the program. A major objective is to provide a stimulating and enjoyable study environment for students that engender a desire to continue learning. Assessment: Written assignments, exams, student presentations, clinical and laboratory

62 HEALTH SCIENCES

LEVEL II The first semester continues with the same Dental Sciences topics as in first year but with a more in-depth approach to the body systems most directly relevant to dental practice. In the second semester students start to learn about the pathogenesis of dental and human disorders. The scientific basis of dental practice, and health and the community components continue throughout the year.

www.health.adelaide.edu.au

In the Clinical Competence theme students build on their basic practical and professional skills. In the later part of the year they start participating in the care of patients within the Adelaide Dental Hospital. The School of Dentistry places an emphasis on maintenance of health and on the comprehensive management of patients with dental and oral diseases while adhering to principles of minimum intervention. LEVEL III and IV In the third and fourth years students extend their Dental Sciences studies to include the understanding of dental disorders and the human diseases which have direct relevance to oral health and dental practice. The scientific basis of dental practice, and the health and the community components continues throughout the year. Within the Clinical Competence theme students further develop skills in comprehensive treatment planning and provide supervised care for patients, obtaining clinical experience in general dental practice and the dental specialties. Students have the opportunity to undertake an elective at the end of the fourth year. LEVEL V This will be a ‘clinical placements’ year. Students undertake a range of placements in the dental hospital and in a range of community settings, both in public and private practice. Elective placements are also made available to provide students with an opportunity to pursue a particular aspect of dental practice in more depth. HONOURS An optional Honours year is available upon the completion of at least the first three years of the BDS. This involves the writing of a report or thesis together with advanced course work. Students with a good academic standard may be permitted to undertake the Honours program concurrently during the BDS. Honours is usually the first step towards a higher degree and possibly a career in research.

The Bachelor of Social Sciences has a strong focus on applied social research, policy analysis and writing in the key areas of the social sciences. From a social justice standpoint, you will learn to recognise differing needs and develop a range of approaches and methods to understand and respond to the critical problems and public issues in society. You will also build valuable qualitative and quantitative research skills and have the opportunity to design your own independent research projects. This degree is very relevant and marketable for future employment in public, private and nongovernment organisations in Australia and overseas. How do we know? Because being social scientists, we identified a number of key stakeholders across industries and asked them about the key capabilities their organisations need. Their views and feedback have been reflected and built into the revitalised program structure.

This program mixes core learning in a broad range of relevant areas with practical research investigation. You will be introduced to methods and tools to design and conduct social research and develop approaches to analyse findings and advocate change. In your final year, you can apply for a merit based Social Sciences Internship that gives direct access to possible future employers with a social justice focus and the opportunity to work on a research project together.

It is strange that our planet is named ‘Earth’ when most of it is ‘sea’, and stranger that many graduates train in tropical seas when the bulk of jobs are in temperate (Antarctic to sub-tropical) seas. Most of Australia’s population lives on temperate coasts. For this reason we prepare graduates for work on these coasts by demonstrating the problems and needs facing marine industry and conservation. The program provides access to staff with national and international acclaim for research excellence, with a strong emphasis on giving students field experience. Students use the same equipment that is used in pioneering research across the northern and southern hemispheres.

This program prepares students for careers in marine biology via training in use of coherent, logical procedures and rigorous experimental planning for practical work in the field and laboratory. There is demand for people with these skills in temperate marine biology.
